New Shooters Join FNH USA Shooting Team
McLean, Va –-(AmmoLand.com)- January 13, 2010. The FNH Shooting Team roster has been bumped up to a total of seven members, including Tommy Thacker and Ken Pfau of FNH USA; sponsored shooters, Tasha Hanish, Mark Hanish; and new members, Dianna Liedorff, Dave Neth, and Larry Houck.
Liedorff is a 17-year veteran with the Tulsa Police Department and was proud to win the Tactical Optics (Lady) division at the 2009 Ft. Benning Three-Gun Challenge.
She hopes to add three more major matches to her schedule in 2010. “I have always looked at competitive shooting as “practice” for skills I may need at work,” Liedorff said.
Neth serves as an Idaho state trooper and is a national champion shooter and state-certified firearms instructor. He has shot competitively for over 15 years in a wide range of shooting disciplines including Three-Gun; USPSA/IPSC; Manual Rifle; Sniper matches; tactical shotgun and others. In the twelve years of the extremely challenging MGM Iron Man event, Neth has taken a remarkable six wins.
Houck currently serves as director of training with the Department of the Army West Region Police Academy and brings a distinguished competition and match management background to the FNH USA team. He had a very respectable year in 2009 including winning Ft. Benning Three-Gun Challenge Champion for the Trooper Division and was Tactical Division winner in the NRA Tactical Police Competition in Waco, Texas, as well as placing in the top four in several other events.
Ken Pfau, vice president of sales for FNH USA, says the Shooting Team’s goal for 2010 is to build public awareness about 3-Gun Shooting while showing the distinct advantages of FN’s guns in matches across the country. Tommy Thacker FNH USA’s product manager and team captain added, ”The team is an important part of product refinement and development, as we move deeper into the shooting sports.”
